Sientra today announced that it received approval from Health Canada to market its smooth surface, high-strength cohesive silicone gel breast implants.
The Santa Barbara, California-based company will market the breast implants in Canada through its local partner Kai Aesthetic. Through the distribution agreement, Sientra will uphold the highest product, safety and service standards to patients and plastic surgeons, the company said.
“Health Canada’s approval of Sientra implants in Canada represents another significant milestone for the company as we continue to strategically expand into international markets. As only the third silicone gel breast implant manufacturer approved in Canada—and the first in nearly two decades—we look forward to providing Canadian consumers with the latest generation technology backed by our clinically-proven, unrivaled ten-year safety data, and our industry-leading Platinum20 warranty,” Sientra President and CEO Ron Menezes said in a news release.
“After watching its development for close to 20 years, the introduction of this new breast technology into the Canadian market is exciting for plastic surgeons and their patients,” plastic surgeon Julie Khanna said in the news release. “With Sientra’s compelling 10-year safety data and low product complication rates, this is going to be a huge benefit for our patients.”
